Designed by Florence Knolls request for “a chair that was like a basket full of pillows, something I could curl up in”, the Womb chair displays Eero Saarinen’s design flair for challenging rules. 

Cushions of polyester fibre with a foam core allow the sitter to be enveloped and enter a world of comfort whilst being flawlessly supported by steel rod legs with a polished chrome finish. Now providing a place with a relaxing sense of security, the chair gains its name from being designed around the theory that a great number of people have never really felt comfortable and secure since they left the womb and this chair. Continuing to be one of the most iconic and recognised representations of mid-century organic modernism, the Womb Chair’s highly innovative structural form will match any interior whilst still drawing the eye to its curvaceous shape and bold colours. The Womb Chair has an accompanying Ottoman, available in the same finish as the chair. Ever wanted to know a little more about Eero Saarinen’s iconic Womb Chair, and why it has its unusual name? Have a read of our latest article – it’s a history lesson you won’t want to miss.
